Haripad: The Kerala government has introduced the merit and reservation system for Plus One admission in unaided schools and the unaided department of aided schools.

40 per cent of seats will be reserved for students in the merit list. Out of the total seats, 12 per cent will be reserved for applicants belonging to Scheduled Castes and 8 per cent for Scheduled Tribes. For the remaining 40 per cent of seats, admissions can be given through the management quota.

If the seats reserved for students belonging to SC and ST communities have no applicants, they will be converted to general seats for admissions based on merit.

The rank list prepared at the school level should be published on dates instructed in the prospectus for higher secondary admission. The list must also have all details including the grade points received by each applicant.

The Higher Education Department has instructed that the first phase of admissions through unaided quota should start on August 4 and be completed by August 16.
